I can't say I agree with everything here, but do agree that church and state were never meant to be one. Do you have recommended readings for getting more understanding of the Liberation Theology you identify with? My understanding of Liberation Theology had more to do with activists who sought to liberate oppressed people in Central America in the late 70s and early 80s. That is, I remember the term being bandied about but no clearly defined worldview.
I have studied pseudopigrapha and have always accepted the current canon of Scripture as valid, so this reference to an altered Gospel is ... initially hard to swallow. (cf. A General Introduction to the Bible; Geisler and Nix)
On the other hand, late in life I have become open to questioning everything else I know and believe, to see what is firm and what is not--including Democracy.
thanks for the conversation.
